I assume that you don't have T-rods on the bass drum? If you do, recessed claws won't work.
There are, as you said, a lot of different bass drum claws on the market that recess the tension rod. My advice is to contact my friend, Andy Foote, at Drum Supply House in Nashville, TN.www.drummaker.net
I just checked their website and they have around a dozen styles of recessed bass drum claws to choose from, and would be able to direct you towards the make/model that fits your budget.

I'm doing a little upgrade on my brady kit which has pretty dated hardware.
I'd like to put on some recessed bass drum claws as most major brands are using these days, just so things don't get knocked when you're moving your kit (specifically bass drum being rested on the head side).
I know TAMA and Pearl have their own versions of this, but getting 20 claws gets exy. I saw Gibraltar have the SC-CH sets. Seems ok, but does anyone know if the recess covers the head of the tension bolt? Any other good quality, economical solutions out there?

Sorry to hear that you were unable to acquire the drums you wanted.
Ehh....crap like this usually happens when I get close to getting something I've really wanted: I say something to screw up the deal and lose out.
Oh well. There's more than one way to skin a cat, as we Southerners say.
Bobby Hutcherson has always been one of my favorite jazz vibraphonists. His playing was a huge influence on me back in college. I still have several of his albums on vinyl.
Rest in peace, Bobby, and thank you for all of the incredible music.

Hey, just wondering how you got on with this as I'm planning on making one for my buddy for his birthday but I'm not a drummer. So I was interested in what wood you chose in the end?
The swing solos make use of a 4-piece drumkit with cowbell, wood block and cymbals. All of these are standard instruments used in a "dance band" or big band setting, which is what the solos are written for.
Hope you enjoy working through the solos!

Thanks a lot (now the "with black drums" option I thought of seems so ridiculous).
W. Blk stands for a Wood Block.

Hi, I'm reading a drum book: "Charley Wicloxon - Modern Rudimental Swing Solos",
and on page 24, the "Corn Belt Jive" solo, there is a crosshair symbol with the "W.Blk" annotation above.
I'm not a drummer, but trying to program drums on logic pro x, so my question would be:
What does W.Blk refers to?
